    Is this progrissive side bet countable

    Blackjack Match is a side bet that wins if the player and/or the dealer have a blackjack.

    The value of the win is maximized if the blackjacks are suited and match.

    Unlike most other progressive side bets, this one costs $5 instead of $1 and*are on a “for one” basis, meaning the original wager is not returned on a win.

    On the top two awards, there is an “Envy Bonus,” which means a win for every other player at the table who made the side bet.

    So basically for player BJ you gets 10
    Matching suited ace/king blackjacksJackpot
    Matching suited blackjacks10% of Jackpot
    Player and dealer suited black$150.00
    Player suite blackjack$50.00
    Player blackjack
    Player ace in first two cards$10

    Assuming you need to employed some sort of ace count, its ASM cut off is 1.5 from 6 or 8 shoes, the ST wont work here.

    It should be countable. Whether it is worth targeting is a different issue.

    Folks,

    The WoO has analyzed this sidebet:

    The original poster seems to be looking at version 2, but some of his "pays" don't quite agree.
